The JIPMER May 2018 exam was very difficult according to most candidates.

With 87% respondents rating it difficult and 13% rating it moderate practically no one rated the exam easy.

Difficult questions were usually framed as “unheard of one liners” and unlike PGI and AIIMS exams, very few concept based questions were asked.

Pharmacology, Pathology and Medicine had the highest weightage.
